Answer: 
Georgetown, we apologize for the confusion. The Saturn III is a pop-up sprinkler. Its position on your lawn is fixed, as it is part of an underground sprinkler system, but the head itself is a pop-up.

Answer: 
Turn the head clockwise until it stops. This sets the how far to the right it will go. You can unscrew the top of the sprinkler, remove it from the housing and set it back in if you wish to further adjust how far to the right it will go. Adjust turn the adjustment screw to set how far it go to the left. It comes set for 90 degrees from the factory.

I am a newbie at this and I must say It took me a long time to figure it out and a lot of waiting for the thing to go back and forth while slightly turning the arc screw in both directions to cover the area I wanted to spray. The start point was driving me nuts until I turn the screw nut to the right the holds the head in the casing until it was tight and then waited until the shaft turned all the way to the right before I grabbed onto the shaft and turn it to the left to get to the start point.

Answer: 
Like the instructions say, using your palm rotate the head to the right, the fixed end of the arc. then rotate the head to the left and install. That will rotate from left to right. Adjust the large screw for more or less travel.

From there they can adjust the left stop. Thanks! Read Less

Call the factory. Good luck. There are three of them, each for a different length of spray. No one carries the set of three. May the gods be with you. I have tried & failed so far.

Answer: 
The length of the spray is proportional to the flow rate. Beyond that, the only option is to buy one two other nozzles that no not come with the sprinkler and that are not carried by retailers, like Home Depot and Lowes. You have to buy them from the factory. Good luck with that. Your best bet might be to buy an other nuzzle. In my case, I need a 16 to 18 foot arc that is not within the range of the Read More

I worked around this problem putting in section of flex pipe & bending the riser down to reduce the length the arc. I have right angle coverage and pulled it at a right angles to get the desired spray length of about 16 feet. Read Less

Be carefully to not back out the distance adjustment to far or you might blow out the nozzle. If it is the green one, it will be hard to find in the lawn.

Hello quilting queen, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pop up Great quality for the price. Holds up to well water. August 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Missing spray nosels [sic]. Great product, with one major exception! There are three Nozzles listed on the the instructions (which are one the back side of the label) for three different spray ranges. They are not included, None of the retailers carry this sprinkler (Home Depot & Lowes) . Dealing with the manufacture is a pain, but this even speak English! If you want headaches, buy this product. Otherwise, it is truly a great sprinkler! These two other Nozzles should be sold with sprinkler!!!! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and adjust Replaced an existed gear drive that stopped turning. Easy to install and adjust. Finding just the right nozzle took a couple tries, but they were easy to swap out. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by inexpensive option You can't beat the price. I just bought two to replace two that I couldn't adjust anymore. I don't believe the quality is as good as some other options, however down by the street that gets beat up by plows, mowers, etc it is cheap to replace. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by all I want is a sprinkler head that doesn't suck Why make parts out of plastic when they are going to be adjusted with metal tools? I had two of these damned things, and I tried to treat them gingerly like the plastic junk that they are, and still managed to strip the adjustments and make them useless. Next step is to cuss, dig them up, cuss, take them back to the store, and look for something less sucky. From now on, brass only. No plastic. I've paid a high price to learn that. June 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saturn III Is a Very Good Sprinkler Head In the last two years I have not lost any of the sprinklers heads, with 12 installed. my landscaper hit one that did retract, due to being installed too low. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent replacement for standard pop-up versions. Product is quite agile to adjustments and provides very good directional delivery of water. Don't judge this replacement by price, but by function. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sprinkler Easy to install. Not sure what else can be said about a sprinkler head you screw it on a pipe add water and it pops up and sprays water. May 18, 2016
